Description

Available in a range of designs and sizes, Forest 4Life™ Overlap Pressure Treated Sheds are beautifully handcrafted here, in Great Britain. Packed full of premium features, they are the best range of overlap sheds Forest has ever made. This particular model is the 6x4 Reverse Apex Shed (1.88m x 1.34m), making it perfectly suited to general-purpose storage in a smaller garden.

Modular Design, Pressure-Treated Wood and 4Life™ Guarantee

This garden shed is expertly designed and built by Britain's leading manufacturer of wooden sheds. Pressure treated and supplied with an extraordinary 25-year anti-rot guarantee, which is the longest guarantee on the market, the wood will never need retreating, sparing you the inconvenience of costly, time-consuming maintenance and providing you with an unbeatably durable shed. You'll only ever need one shed with a 4Life™ Shed!

Featuring an intelligent modular design, this 6x4 shed is delivered to you in smaller sections of interchangeable panels, so you'll find it much easier to assemble than other wooden sheds. This modular design also allows you greater flexibility with door and window placements, helping you customise the shed to your exact requirements. What's more, with 30% more framing, this garden shed isn't just easier to assemble and more versatile than other wooden sheds, it's far stronger too.

Smart Overlap Walls, Extra-Thick Floor and Reverse Apex Roof

The walls are constructed from 7mm overlap cladding, which allows for the natural movement of the timber over the changing seasons and ensures excellent rainwater runoff. These overlap boards are straight cut, giving them a much smarter finish than standard overlap cladding.

The extra-thick 14mm solid wood floor is 40% thicker than standard shed flooring! It is supported by pressure-treated bearers, which provide a further layer of protection against rot-causing ground moisture. The roof is built from tough 8mm OSB and fitted with a green mineral-felt cover for complete weatherproof protection. It comes with an eye-catching reverse apex design to nicely round off the shed's exceptionally attractive appearance.

Secure Door and Shatterproof Glazing

You can access this shed via a single door, which can be installed in different positions, and hung for a left or right-hand opening - the choice is yours. Ledged and braced for extra strength and to prevent dropping/ movement, this door is fitted with hidden security hinges plus a padlock-ready hasp & staple plate, giving you peace of mind that your valuable tools are safe (padlock not included).

Once inside, you'll find the high roofline allows plenty of headroom, along with the chance to store taller items. The 2 PET-glazed windows provide an abundance of natural light - perfect if you're storing important equipment or working on DIY projects. Far more secure than conventional glass, these windows are completely shatterproof, made from recycled materials, and will neither discolour nor fade over time. You can instal them in a variety of positions - again, the choice is yours. (Please see the floor plan for further details.)

Forest's White Glove Delivery Service

Free delivery is available to most UK postcodes using Forest's White Glove Service. This means the shed is delivered straight into your garden, with all of the product packaging removed. This overlap shed comes with a full set of fixings and clear instructions to help you achieve a straightforward assembly.

Optional Upgrades

If you'd rather the professionals assemble the shed for you, we offer a competitively-priced installation service as an optional upgrade.

You can purchase a pressure-treated shed base as an optional extra too.

Shed Base Options

Wooden Shed Base

Wooden Shed Base Kit

As an alternative to laying slabs or concrete, this shed base is a faster, more cost effective DIY solution.

The wooden shed base consists of a framework that is made from UC4 incised timber which has been pressure treated. The pressure treatment ensures that the framework is robust and is guaranteed to resist rot for an impressive 15 years.

Size of base: 7.5cm (h) x 118cm (w) x 182.6cm (d)

 

 

Plastic Shed Base

Plastic Shed Base Kit

Quick and simple to install, the 6x4 plastic shed base kit is ideal for avoiding the hassle of laying slabs or concrete when preparing a base for a new shed. Its interlocking design makes it easy to put together and, though lightweight, it provides a very strong and durable base for the shed. Made from 100% recycled plastic, this shed base is eco-friendly. Also, it can be reused if the shed is repositioned. The base allows for ventilation and drainage under the shed, helping to keep the shed floor dry.

To install the base, simply interlock the square grids together and lay onto a firm, level area of ground. We recommend using 15kg of 10mm pea gravel per square (gravel not included). Each square is 500 x 500 x 40mm. This pack contains 12 squares and heavy-duty, commercially-graded weed membrane.

Please be advised that we do not assemble plastic shed bases as part of our installation service. You must prepare the base yourself in advance of the installers' visit.

Why Choose a Forest Overlap 4Life Shed™?

Forest Garden are proud to introduce their latest innovation: The 4Life Shed™.  You can configure a shed that suits you and your garden. All boast a solid timber floor, 30% more framing and are easier to build. You'll only ever need one shed with a 4Life Shed™.

 

 

Why you need a Forest Overlap Pressure Treated 4Life Shed™?

 

If you're looking to purchase a new shed and can afford a slightly higher initial spend, buying a pressure treated shed will save you a lot of time and money in the long term. 4Life Sheds are completely maintenance free - there is no need to ever apply treatment. Most other sheds require treatment once built - then yearly treatment thereafter.

 

Forest branded pressure treated sheds have a number of features to ensure maximum durability and strength including solid boarded wooden floors, security door hinges, extra framing and so much more. 

 

1. Metal Roof Truss Brackets

Larger apex models feature a metal truss bracket that adds strength to the roof and ensures best alignment.

2. High Quality Roof

The roof is made from 8mm OSB and is covered in a durable weatherproof felt. Reflecting the high quality of this shed, the roof is finished with smooth planed barge boards and a decorative finial.

3. Increased Security Windows

Our windows are glazed with shatterproof PET glazing, made from recycled materials, which will not yellow or become brittle over time. PET is more robust than the styrene used in standard sheds.

4. Pressure Treated Modular Panels

Pressure treatment forces preservative deep inside the timber. The result is long-lasting protection against rot and fungal decay. There is no need to re-treat EVER, saving an estimated £200 in time and treatment costs compared to dip treated sheds. Same size panels are interchangeable - you can choose the window placement to suit your garden allowing flexibility for your garden design. Doors can be positioned to the left or right of the shed. Single doors can be hung to be left- or right-hand opening.

5. Thick Timber Framing & Overlap Cladding

The design of our sheds feature more extenisve framing than standard sheds (30% more framing). This results in a more robust build. 7mm straight edge overlap cladding provides consistency and strength as well as providing the traditional style we all know and love. The high-quality cladding means the panels are less likely to warp or develop gaps.

6. Hidden Hinges

Our doors are fitted with hidden security hinges, the hidden hinges cannot be tampered with from the outside.

7. Robust Doors with Double Z Framing

Our doors feature double Z bracing for extra strength, security and to prevent the doors dropping. This is superior to the basic ledge bracing on standard sheds.

8. Secure Door Latch Plate Fastened

The doors are fitted with a hasp and staple closure, ready for you to add a padlock (padlock not included).

9. Solid Wooden Floor

Strong 14mm pressure-treated boarded timber floor. This wooden floor is built to withstand storage of heavier items as well as years of footfall. The floor is further strengthened by pressure treated bearers. A timber floor is far superior to the OSB that comes with standard sheds.

Highly Adaptable

SMALLER SECTIONS MAKE TRANSPORTATION AND HANDLING EASY.

QUICK AND EASY CONSTRUCTION.

Pressure Treatment Process Explained

The Pressure Treatment process for timber has been applied to products for a number of years; the key benefit of this process is that the preservative is forced under vacuum pressure right deep into the heart of the wood and the grain structure. The preservative becomes an integral part of the wood; giving a long life and protection against rot.

 

This process also means that you never have to apply preservatives to your garden shed, and it allows the natural colours of the timber to show through and so your shed blends easily within your garden. Surprisingly, our Pressure Treated Sheds are only slightly more expensive than Dip Treated Sheds.

VACUUM

Timber is loaded into chamber and a vacuum empties timber cells of air.

FLOODED

Cylinder is flooded under vacuum with preservative.

PRESSURE

Preservative is forced deep into timber using hydraulic pressure.

VACUUM

Another vacuum extracts excess preservative.

 

DRY

Timber draws in surface excess of preservative under low pressure, then is left to dry.

 

NO NEED TO RE-TREAT - SAVING YOU TIME AND MONEY!

All of the products that we sell are dispatched from this site. The final part of their journey is managed by our dedicated delivery department who are responsible for distribution direct to customers' homes by our fleet of vehicles.
